The Huskies arrived at their hotel around 11 p.m. last night after their long ride from SeaTac got a lot longer.
They were supposed to leave a little before noon Friday. However, the plane they were supposed to take to Hawaii had mechanical problems. And their replacement plane had to come from the East Coast. Part of the reason for that is that the sheer size of the operation of moving a football team -- and its equipment -- means not any old charter plane will do. Plus, an even bigger plane was needed for this trip because the equipment that is usually driven to the road venue in a huge moving-van-like truck, obviously couldn't be driven to Hawaii.
The bottom line is that the Huskies spent the next six hours in SeaTac's south terminal before the plane was finally ready. They adjusted by scrapping some unit-by-unit meetings in favor of a single team meeting at the hotel before heading off to their rooms.
Today's schedule was back to normal.
